Robert Engles Allegedly Cut Through Plastic Patio Wall In Attempt To Avoid Paying Bar Tab

Patrons of Centro Latin Kitchen in Boulder, Colorado, wouldn't readily describe the place as a "hole in the wall." It's clean, trendy, and befitting a handful of other adjectives attributed to a decent place. Robert Engles disagrees, at least if we're to judge him by his actions.

Engles was busted Saturday after he cut a hole in the restaurant's plastic patio wall and crawled through it in an attempt to leave without paying. Engles' escape, however, was cut short by a metal fence that surrounds the patio. With no place to go, employees at the restaurant restrained him until police arrived.

A police report on the incident points out the metal fence Engles struggled to overcome was 4 1/2 feet tall. And the tab Engles was fleeing? $33.

The Daily Camera reports Engles was booked into the Boulder County Jail on $5,000 bond for suspicion of felony menacing, defrauding an innkeeper and criminal mischief.

The 42 year-old Engles had an Arizona drivers license, according to Westword.
